REMINDER: Please contact me when you send and receive as I've been busy and only check the gallery every few days. It's much easier for me to keep track of where everyone is in the swap if you message me. Also, I'll be giving out feedback for those of you who have sent and received come this Monday, November 29th or possibly earlier depending on my school schedule. I'll be sending reminders to those of you who have not yet sent (even late with communication) just to check up on you sometime this weekend.

Onto fun news, all these packages are great! That orange blanket looks soo super fluffy and soft, I wish I had one like that now.

Or not...seems I have misplaced the cord for my camera. Hopefully I will be able to track it down tomorrow in between stuffing my face and napping. Worse comes to worse I will take the pictures with my phone. Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

It was hiding in my craft basket -.-

On to the photos!

Super cute tote. Owwwwlllss!! <3

Closeup of owl fabric

Modeled by this lovely water bottle.

DEXTER!! This is a t-shirt...a t-shirt I will wear often.

Beautiful necklace. Love, love, loooove this. I was in desperate need of a necklace and i couldn't have asked for a nicer one.

EEEEEEEEEP!! A laptop bag! And just in time! I will be going on vacation soon and definitely needed something to haul around my laptop in. This is not just a laptop bag...this is a LUXURY laptop bag!!

Inside view. Note the 2 pockets and i'm not sure if you can see this...but there is about an inch of cushion. CUSHION, people. Surrounding and protecting my precious laptop.

I LOVE it all! Thank you so much rainysunshine! This was a pick me up and a half!

Personal Swaps = Yes, Please!

spidermom:  I'm so glad you like everything!  That was my first time framing embroidery in the hoop and the frog was only my second attempt at three dimensional needle felting, so I was very proud of them both.   Cheesy

There is so much great stuff coming though the board. I love the makeneko painting and the owl hoop. I sent Monday I hope it got to rubies-pearls before the holiday mail stop.

Wow everything's amazing I especially love the Roald Dahl themed charms. My partner's sending a little late so I'm keeping my package back in case I get inspiration before she sends...then I can send more stuff!! Cheesy

Ohhhhhhhhh my god my partner, VegasZombie, is AMAZING! She's a freaking mindreader! Holy Crap. ^_^  Apologies for being so pic-heavy, but I had to show off her awesomeness!

All right, here's the goods:
First, the super-stuffed box before the kid and I tore into it:

Next, the totally sweet yarns and flower pins that I already have a project in mind for ^_^:

Here's the totally badass retro apron in my FAVORITE colors, blue and black, modeled by DH's monitor, since I'm the only one home right now who can operate a camera:

And here's the incredible candy haul that puts Halloween to shame!

Ok, seriously, the whole time we chatted, I never ONCE mentioned that the stop-action TV specials "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" are absolutely my favorite christmas movies EVER.  How did she know?!?! And she also included not one, but TWO!! chocolate oranges, the absolute best chocolate in the world.

Obligatory action shot of "blue monster sucker! yay!"

In keeping with the christmas theme, she tucked in these rocking buttons that have already found a home on my crafting tote, as well as my new favorite christmas ornaments:

Here's the adorable little door that the kid has already claimed for her fairies.  There was a matching blue treasures box that somehow in all the chaos didn't get uploaded:

Two beautifully crafted Tree of Life pendants (again, how did you know?!?! I love them SOOO much!):

And finally, the pièce de résistance, and a threat that gets thrown around my kitchen on a weekly basis:

VegasZombie, you are truly amazingly, incredibly awesome! I love it all! 

There is nothing on earth more entertaining than watching a pack of half-grown puppies playing in snow for the very first time.
